This 45 ACP upper kit starts with a Gibbz Arms G9 Non Reciprocating Side Charging Billet Aluminum receiver,, mated to a Tactical Kinetics 16 inch 45 ACP, 1:16 Twist, Nitride/Melonite treated barrel. The Gibbz Arms receiver is a proprietary patented receiver that has a non reciprocating side charging handle - handle stays forward during cycling. Side handle is on the opposite side of ejection port allowing the shooter to quickly charge or recharge the weapon without taking finger off the trigger and eye off the scope. Tactical Kinetics is one of the our major partners in the industry and they especially make great pistol caliber barrels. Feed cones on their barrels are larger to accomodate a larger variety of bullet types. The Axis Rail is a free floated system, M-LOK slots on all three sides, full length picatinny rail at the top, lightweight handguard. Barrel Nut is made out of solid steel to ensure a solid mounting system.
Comes with the Bolt Carrier Group, lower parts kit and M4 milspec stock kit - everything included to turn your stripped lower receiver into a full rifle..
SOPMOD stock by JE Machine Tech is OPTIONAL. Features a wide cheek weld, rubber non slip butt pad, two water tight storage compartments and stainless steel QD swivel mount. Made in the US.
We can also UPGRADE the TRIGGER to a Rise Armament Rave 140 Trigger. Great option if you are looking for a lighter and more crisp trigger pull.
We also offer an OPTION to add a 80% Raw or Anodized 7075 T6 Aluminum Milspec Lower Receiver (standard AR-15 lower, not pcc lower - magwell adapter needed) to your kit.
We also offer a CHOICE of Muzzle Devices - upgrade the flash hider to a Black or Stainless Competition Muzzle Brake. This is an enhanced version of the popular style muzzle brakes. The ports are milled larger and up to near the center line for maximum recoil reduction.
